On tonight's Hoardganize Podcast Professional Organizer Rachel Seavey shares five organizing tips during a quarantine, isolation, shelter in place, etc.

These are new and uncertain times and I know a lot of you are nervous and unsure. The best thing you can do to gain certainty and clarity is to create weekly schedules for yourself and your family.

Creating a schedule not only brings certainty but in brings order into a chaotic world. While we can't control what's going on around us, we can control the state of our organization inside of our homes.

If you have always wanted to declutter your closet, clean out your junk drawer, organize your garage, there is not a better time than when you are forced to socially isolate.

Pick up your calendars hard or soft copies and start scheduling all of the organizing tasks that you haven't made time for yet with your usually busy schedules. Now is the time to get things done. Pass time being productive and healthy and you will come out of this crisis a stronger and more organized person.
